UNIQLO to open 10 large domestic stores in spring/summer 2007

PDF ( 16KB )

UNIQLO continues to open new stores across the country this spring.

We are planning to open 10 large stores with floor space of 1650sqm in the spring/summer season of 2007.We believe these large stores are key engines for future UNIQLO growth. We currently have 17 large UNIQLO stores across Japan, and we aim to boost that total to 100 stores in the coming 3 years.

 Large stores – the engine for future UNIQLO growth

At UNIQLO, we view stores over 1,650sqm as key engines for future growth. The development of these large stores, two or three times the size of our regular stores, is already transforming UNIQLO. 

 Developing products and designing product lines destined for the large store format is helping make UNIQLO even more attractive. It allows us to expand our products specifically for women, deepen store inventory of key top-selling garments, and offer a wider new product range.

 We can also offer our customers a more fun shopping experience at our large stores. We can show our customers a much more attractive, exciting shop floor display, with stronger visual merchandising and more varied suggested coordinates.

 Ten new large stores set to open in spring/summer 2007

We plan to open new large stores in spring/summer 2007 across the country in Niigata, Chiba, Hyogo, Kagawa, Fukuoka, Ibaraki, Tokyo, Aomori, Osaka, and Mie. Our current plans are for 10 large stores with the LoveLa Bandai store set to open in Niigata early March, followed by the opening of our Kobe Harborland Ha.Re store in late March in Kobe’s popular leisure spot. We also plan to open stores in late April such as the Setagaya Chitosedai store in Setagaya, Tokyo.UNIQLO’s large stores are places where customers can relax and enjoy the spacious environment and huge range on offer, where they can enjoy a broad choice in the very latest trend items or basic items to just mix and match.

UNIQLO will continue this aggressive focus on large store development.
